Drawing upon literary and archaeological sources, this work, written by a classicist, includes copious details on the life and times of Alexander the Great. The casual listener may find that the work includes too much detail, but it will be of interest to history buffs and those interested in ancient civilization. With a voice that's a cross between a professor and a public radio announcer, Runger enlivens a somewhat dull text. He reads with clarity at appropriate pace, never stumbling on the many foreign words. M.L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
